Google Maps brings "My Maps"

I was trying to run a map on Google Maps for a place I had to be in the evening, when I saw a small tab called "My Maps" on the left sidebar! It is a real cool feature, where you can save your maps – but more importantly, you can create mash-ups with pictures and shapes and lines etc.. and then share with public or friends. You can add videos, pictures etc.

Here is the official blurb for it:

Create and share personalized, annotated maps of your world.

  • Mark your favorite places on your map.
  • Draw lines and shapes to highlight paths and areas.
  • Add your own text, photos, and videos.
  • Publish your map to the web.
  • Share your map with friends and family.

More about this feature is given here.
